Sea Launch (Boeing)


Who knew? Of course we know about Cape Canaveral at the Kennedy Space Center and Vandenberg Air Force Base, but Sea Launch? However, did you really think NASA’s space shuttles were wasting their time with the launching of commercial television satellites? Nah, no way with Iran, Korea, and the so-called Axis of Evil needing every watchful eye (i.e., spy satellites) this administration can muster.

Enter Sea Launch for DIRECTV, EchoStar, and other private ventures. Sea Launch is the world’s only commercial ocean-based space launch platform. With the increasing privatization of space, it may well be not so very far off that we in fact do see Google teaming up with Wicked Lasers to place its well-known words-only unobtrusive ads in the sky.
